The trademark filed for Star Wars 1313 at the United States Patent and Trademark Office has now lapsed, providing the final nail in the coffin for the Coruscant-set action title.

The application was "abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request [was] timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued”, confirming that no release is planned for the title at any point in the future.

All of this comes following Disney’s acquisition LucasFilm in October 2012 and the subsequent closure of LucasArts. At the time, a rep from LucasArts said "there's always a possibility that it [Star Wars 1313] can still come out via licensing,” but it would seem that isn’t to be.

Announced ahead of E3 2012, Star Wars 1313 would have starred Boba Fett on an adventure that saw the bounty hunter descend into the underworld of Coruscant. It was proposed as a “mature” experience. There’s a vid below, showing off what we’re missing.

Yep. No room for a darker more mature Star Wars in Disney's domain.

Honestly, I don't think that was it. People talk about how the WatchDogs demo was overrated, that's how I feel about the 1313 demo. It didn't really look as interesting as people made it out to be. Looked like a poor man's Gears of War if I'm being perfectly honest. Great graphics though.

Well that sucks. I thought the trailer looked really good and I think the storyline could have been very interesting. As long as Battlefront is safe I'm ok though.

hmm, and that other star wars game that was coming to XBL/PSN gone too? It reminded me of COD with blasters.

Basically thought the same. It had some killer graphics, however, it just didn't look all to appealing to me.

Hold the GD and I agree but like I said MAYBE just maybe they got better plans?
I suppose, but I was really into the whole mature bounty hunter idea for a Star Wars game. I doubt they would do something better honestly.
